The Benefits Of A PRP Facial

The Benefits Of A PRP Facial

PRP facials are gaining lots of attention as a safe way to rejuvenate facial skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles without having to undergo a surgical procedure. At OMNI SCULPT in Dallas, TX, we use PRP facial treatments in combination with dermal filler injections as part of our Non-Surgical Facelift procedure.

The PRP facial portion of the procedure helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to enhance the texture of facial skin, while the dermal fillers fill in fine lines, wrinkles, hollow areas, and any volume loss caused by the aging process. The result of these combined techniques is a rejuvenated, radiant complexion, and a fuller, more youthful look to the face.

In this blog, we’ll go into the details about exactly what a PRP facial is, how the process works, who can benefit from PRP facials, and what to expect from a PRP facial treatment.

What Is A PRP Facial?

A PRP facial, short for Platelet-Rich Plasma facial, is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes the natural healing properties of the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of facial skin.

The PRP facial process begins with your practitioner drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it into a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood to separate the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the other components of your blood.  Platelets are small cells in your blood that contain natural growth factors that can stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities to help your body generate new tissue, and Platelet-Rich Plasma contains around 5-10 times more platelets than untreated blood.

We then inject the Platelet-Rich Plasma into areas of the face where we want to promote natural healing and tissue growth. (We also do PRP injections to promote healing in joints, ligaments and tendons, and to promote hair growth in the scalp.)

These injections help add lift and volume and improve the texture of the facial skin using your own body’s natural healing process. PRP facial treatments enhance your natural beauty without the “plastic” or “artificial” look of a surgical facelift.

How Does a PRP Facial Work?

PRP facial injections work by delivering concentrated doses of platelets directly to the areas of the face where we want to enhance the natural healing process and repair some of the effects of aging.

The growth factors contained in Platelet-Rich Plasma help improve the appearance of facial skin in several ways:

  • Promoting collagen and elastin production – Enhanced collagen and elastin production improves the firmness and elasticity of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Promoting cellular turnover – Cellular turnover is the process by which old, damaged skin cells are replaced by new ones. This diminishes the appearance of imperfections and leads to smoother, more radiant skin with improved texture and tone.
  • Improving blood flow to the skin – PRP improves blood flow to the skin by stimulating the formation of new blood vessels. This allows more oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the skin cells, which enhances the skin’s overall health and vitality.

And because Platelet-Rich Plasma uses your own blood and taps into your body’s natural healing process, we can achieve natural-looking results with far fewer risks than there would be in a surgical procedure.

Benefits of a PRP Facial

PRP facial treatments offer a range of benefits for people who want to achieve a more youthful, radiant look without undergoing a surgical procedure, including:

  • Improved Skin Texture – Increased collagen production and cellular turnover reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and other imperfections.
  • Increased Skin Elasticity and Firmness – Increased collagen production and cellular turnover also helps tighten up the skin and minimize sagging.
  • Improved Skin Tone – PRP facials can help even out skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. They can also help minimize the appearance of dark spots and sun damage.
  • Minimal Downtime – Patients can often return to their normal routine very quickly after treatment.
  • Minimally Invasive – PRP facials do not involve incisions or anesthesia. Risk factors for PRP facials are significantly less than risk factors for surgical procedures.
  • Natural-Looking Results – PRP facials enhance your natural beauty without the “plastic” or “artificial” look that can often come from a surgical procedure.
  • Natural and Safe – The procedure uses your own blood to enhance your body’s natural healing capabilities, which reduces the risk of allergic reactions or adverse side effects.
  • Long-Lasting Results – Results can typically last from 12 to 18 months. We recommend returning every 12 months or so for a follow-up treatment to maintain results.
  • Customizable Approach – This treatment can target specific areas of concern or need on your face without disturbing other areas.

Who Is a Good Candidate For A PRP Facial?

A PRP facial can be beneficial for most people who want to improve the appearance of their skin. You may be a good candidate if you are concerned about:

Before we treat you, we will schedule a consultation to assess the condition of your skin and determine if a PRP facial is the right treatment for you.

What to Expect from a PRP Facial Treatment at OMNI-SCULPT

At OMNI-SCULPT, we offer a PRP facial as part of our Non-Surgical Facelift, which also includes dermal filler injections to enhance the process.

The first step in the process is to schedule an initial consultation where we discuss your skincare goals, assess your skin’s condition, and determine the best treatment protocols for your individual needs. We then review every aspect of the Non-Surgical Facelift procedure to make sure you’re comfortable every step of the way. If you decide to move forward with the procedure, we schedule an appointment.

To prepare for your appointment, we ask that you take the following precautions:

  • Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to the appointment
  • Avoid any unprotected sun exposure or tanning in the weeks before the appointment
  • Do not take any blood-thinning medications for a week prior to your treatment
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
  • Arrive to your appointment with clean skin, free of any makeup or products

The procedure starts with your practitioner drawing a small amount of your blood and spinning it with a centrifuge to isolate the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the rest of the components of the blood. 

Before using the Platelet-Rich Plasma, your practitioner injects hyaluronic acid dermal fillers into the problem areas of the face in order to provide the structure needed for the PRP growth factors to be maximally effective.

After the dermal fillers are injected, the Platelet-Rich Plasma is injected to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes and help boost the volume and tone of those areas of your face. The filler adds lift and volume right away, and the Platelet-Rich Plasma helps build your collagen structure over time to help support new volume. We find that combining these techniques helps produce consistently satisfying results for our clients. 

PRP Facial Aftercare

You may notice some redness after the procedure. This is normal.

Depending on the approach we took with your skin during the procedure, you may be able to immediately resume your daily activities. We will have to assess your condition at the time of the procedure to determine how quickly you can resume your normal routine.

Specific post-treatment care instructions will be provided to you at the time of the procedure.
